Top strap broken

I just found that my top strap is broken, how long before my tank comes apart?

How large is the tank? I have seen little tanks 20G or such have no impact. But with larger tanks it's a gamble. could bust out now or never. Look at the front glass from the side, is it bowed out?

It's a 60" 125 gal. tank. It has old salt creep built up on it so I don't know when it busted. There is a little bit of a bow but does not appear to be much.

Nope, not yet. Saw it and went into panic mode.

Tried to buy a top strap, can't identify the aquarium manufacture so that is out of the question.

As long as you know the dimensions and glass thickness I'm sure you can use any kind.... If not try to match it up visually

Haven't had any luck locating a top and I am getting worried, I have about 3/4 of an inch bow in the tank.
